How To Murder A Marriage
GIVE A MAN ENOUGH ROPE AND HE'LL HANG HIMSELF-BUT BE CAREFUL, THE GALLOWS LOVE A CROWD
Gina Malone, a bestselling relationships advice author and expert on exes, meddles in other people's affairs for a living. It makes for enemies. One of them is scaring her to death.
A modern-day Miss Lonelyhearts, Gina's smart, she's sassy, she's got a potty mouth, and she's determined to live life on her own terms. She's also divorced, an empty nester, and turning fifty. In the true spirit of mid-life crises, Gina dyes her hair, pierces her nose, and moves to a tiny tourist town on the Canadian shores of Lake Huron.
Just as she's settling into her new life and deciding whether to fall into bed with her hot contractor, Gina advises a reader to leave her husband, right before the woman goes missing. And Gina's got a stalker. Is it her vengeful ex-husband, the abusive ex of the missing woman, or her new crush's crazy ex? All three would love to get her alone in some dark and deserted place, which isn't tough to do since her new residence is an old family cottage she's renovating on an empty stretch of beach.
Can Gina outsmart her stalker and find the missing woman before the noose around her own neck gets any tighter?
Readers who like to read thrillers but without the gore or huge dead body count may want to check out this book. The main character, Gina is just who I needed. I like that she was not in her mid twenties but older. I don't think there is enough older female protagonist. So when I come across one that can kick some serious butt too; I get excited.
What woman would not love to have two men vying for her attention. Any women unless those two men are creepy stalkers. One is Gina's ex husband and the other is the husband of a woman that Gina gave advice to.
This is a fast paced book. It gave me a bit of Gone Girl vibes. I do look forward to reading the next book in this series.
